Manig Loeser wins his second live tournament of the month after beating 1,250-entrants in a $400 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Monster Stack event as part of the Venetian DeepStack Extravaganza V in Las Vegas.
I’m going to the shop to buy a lottery ticket, win, and then use the money to buy a Dalí at Sotheby’s, and then wager it on my belief that Manig Loeser will be the Tarzan of the High Roller jungle this year.
As we pulled the Russian fur hat out of the box marked Winter the Vienna-based maestro was taking down a 42-entrant $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em event at The Bellagio as part of the World Poker Tour (WPT) Five Diamond World Poker Classic for $321,300.
Here is a reminder of that top quality final table.
Final Table Results
1. Manig Loeser – $321,300
2. Elio Fox – $308,700
3. Jake Schindler – $168,000
4. Dan Smith – $105,000
5. Cary Katz – $84,000
6. Nick Petrangelo – $63,000
Across the road, The Venetian ended 2018 with the Venetian DeepStack V, including two tournaments on Christmas Day. Loeser was one of a multitude of players who decided to have a Las Vegas Christmas, and it turned out to be a wise choice.
Loeser topped a field of 1,250-entrants to capture the $74,323 first prize in a $400 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Monster Stack event, including a final table housing the double WSOP bracelet winner Eric Baldwin, and the Network Marketing guru Eric Worre.
Baldwin exited the contest in fifth place, but Worre went all the way to the bitter end, losing to Loeser, heads-up. Worre is the author of the Network Marketing Bible Go Pro, and earlier this year, had his claims that there is no better entrepreneurial opportunity for the average person than Network Marketing challenged by Larry King.
Worre has won more than $600,000 in live tournament earnings including finishing 6/294 in the $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed Championship at the 2016 World Series of Poker (WSOP) for $66,270, finishing 3/44 in a $25k High Roller at the ARIA in the same year, and beating 2,251 entrants to win the $326,764 first prize in a $1,100 No-Limit Hold’em event in the Venetian.
Loeser has $8.6m in live tournament earnings including winning the Triton Poker Series Main Event in Montenegro for $2.1m back in 2017. It’s his sixth career victory.
